Are you looking for a coffee machine for your Southampton-based business or workplace? Find out more about the different options available and find the one that is right for you.
Coffee machines are now found frequently within most workplaces. Whilst we all love coffee, everyone has different preferences. This is why, at Nexus, we have supplied a wide range of options to Southampton-based businesses and homes over the past 25 years.
Whether you are searching for a machine that will provide you with an extensive selection of hot drinks or just a quick cup of quality coffee to get your day started, we have you covered.
What coffee machine options are there?
Whilst you may have heard the coffee machine terms ‘single-serve’ and ‘bean to cup’, it is often not obvious how they are different from one another or their advantages.
The crucial difference in each machine’s function is that bean to cup, as the name might suggest, is loaded with beans which are then ground and brewed, whilst single-serve machines provide a variety of hot drinks one capsule at a time. Having supplied hot drinks dispensers to Southampton and beyond for many years, we understand the myths that surround coffee machines.
It is because of this that we believe it is vital for our customers to consider their options before committing to one.
Should I buy a bean-to-cup coffee machine?
The first, and most often misunderstood, of these two popular hot drinks dispenser options is the bean to cup coffee machine.
Despite being capable of serving a brilliant cup of coffee, the maintenance and training needed for bean to cup machines is often undervalued. Unlike the pricey steam arm coffee machines often found in cafés which use removable group heads for brewing ground coffee, bean to cup machines brew internally. This means that the vast majority of bean to cup models need to be disassembled and cleaned properly to remove used coffee grounds and ensure quality.
So, despite these machines providing some of the best cups of coffee for homes and workplaces in Southampton, it is worth being aware that this is only possible if looked after.
Should I buy a single-serve coffee machine?
Single-serve machines, particularly such as our bestselling Flavia coffee machines, are the other popular coffee machine that we frequently supply around Southampton.
These capsule-based hot drink dispensers are used by many due to their versatility and their convenience, not requiring any training and very little maintenance. Single-serve machines are also great at providing a wide range of the UK’s favourite hot drinks brands, such as Mars, Kenco, and Yorkshire Tea.
Their single-use brewing method means that it is easy to switch between different drinks without any problems.
Can single-serve coffee machines be environmentally friendly?
As a result of the waste often being associated with coffee machines, such as filters and refills, considering just how environmentally friendly using one is in your Southampton home or business is natural.
